I just bought this at one of my auctions just because i liked its looks,I was thinking about restoring it,it pulls over well with good compression,the name on it is Penn Acco,has a clinton motor with a alloy deck,it was stored in a barn till I pulled it out 2 days before sale day.

Fairbanks-Morris, they put their stamp on a lot of stuff in days of old. I have a direct drive chainsaw by them (very scary), they are mostly known for there tractor mag's and weight scales

It is a trim mower, the mulching deck is for safety, the left front wheel is in the trim position to get under stuff (and find thing's to throw) so no discharge shoot

Neat mower !  

 I've always wonder why some mowers had the one wheel back further , in fact the old mower that I used at my son's yesterday was made like that , stamped steel deck with no way to move it forward .

sorry I forgot the rear picture it has a rear discharge,just like aimin a gun at ya!Now I need to find out all I can about clinton engines andabout when it would have been built,I have a feeling that clinton engines must be rather scarce because of the prices of parts on ebay.I was thinking restore but which way is it worth more ,Restored or cleaned up and running,I have some wheels that would match whats on there and they have some rust also so they would look about right,myself I would prefer restored but someone else may not

 And say down the line some one see it and has to have it ,how much and how do you affix this value?

I think there is a point somewhere, if it isn't too shabby, you should leave it alone. If it just looks beat, it needs to be put back to new. You need to decide where that point is.
